Buffalo Mountain Lodge is a few minutes drive up Tunnel Mountain, far enough away from Banff Ave to provide more of a "cabin" feel. We had a rental car, which I think is a must for this location.
Recommendation: pay the $30/night for upgraded premium room, but only if you can get a room on the upper floor. Upper floor rooms have high, vaulted, wooden ceilings. We stayed in the 1200 range of rooms, I think the 1100s would be ideal, with best view. Also, the bathrooms in the premium rooms are spacious with heated floors & nice finishes.
The fire place, wood burning, is really nice. They provide you with a starter kit each day. Our room had a flat screen TV with DVD player. Also had nice sized deck. Wifi worked well.
We didn't eat here, too many other better options in town. I highly recommend "The Bear Street Tavern" for pizza, "The Bison" for a nice dinner, and the Fairmont breakfast buffet at least once (pricey).
The shoveling crew was cranky, front desk service was helpful. Overall, really enjoyable and comfortable stay.
